Subcontractors' Concerns Regarding Productivity

by Enno Koehn, Lamar Univ, United States,

Abstract: This study suggests that smaller contractors, many of whom operate as sub-contractors, are less interested than larger firms in taking an active part in identifying, funding, and conducting research in productivity related problems. In addition, poor project scheduling and communications, and inadequate plans and specifications are given as significant factors related to low productivity.
